The Norman Police Department is inviting Norman residents to meet and interact with its officers this Monday.
All community members are being encouraged to come to Coffee with a Cop from 7:30am to 9:30am at Braums on Lindsey St. to informally discuss community issues and build relationships with officers over coffee.
“The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction,” according to a press release from Norman PD.
